      I need to upgrade my cameras. I do mostly weddings and small business videos. What particular cameras do you suggest I buy? And what features should I look for in lens, sensor, low light capabilities, etc.?
      I would like to keep it under $3,000 for a new camera.
      By the way, I have always been a Sony man, but may be willing to branch out and try something else.

      I am using the Gh4 an in my opinion it is the best “lower budget” Camera on the market for Weddings! Check out my last Video of it (https://youtu.be/Phmdx9b3jM4). The Gh4 Cost around 1000 dollars and with 2 Good lenses you are at around 2000 dollars.

      thanks for the recommendation. Nice video…I know it is not the topic, but can you say how you do the zooming and panning? Is it on the tripod?

      Canon camera and lens are worth a try. They do produce some really great lens for wedding photography. Check out this detail buying guide: http://whatphotographygear.com/photography-gadgets/canon-lenses-for-wedding-photography.html

      Thanks, that is helpful. I’d like to have a camera that provides continuous autofocus because as people move I find refocusing is taking a second and can’t be done at crucial moments. I have a 5D Mkii and a backup 600D. Is there a good camera that will autofocus as the people move around?

      The Panasonic Lumix Gh4 has a good autofocus. The Sony A7s Mark ii has an even better Autofocus. If you are looking for a good autofocus camera by Canon check out the 70d and the 80d. They are awesome!

      Usually i use a Monopod by Manfrotto and a Fluid head on Top. The “Zooms” have been done with a cheap slider on a tripod. I don’t use zoom lenses so i zoom in like that.
